About this game

Battle Norse raiders, ghosts, and changelings to save medieval England! But beware, if the elves can capture the Book you hold, the world will end.

"Chronicon Apocalyptica" is a 250,000-word interactive medieval fantasy novel by Robert Davis. It's entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

You are an Anglo-Saxon scribe in the year 1000. You hold a Book of secrets written generations ago, including this prophecy: "When Æthelred II is King, he shall not be King, but there shall be an elven changeling in his stead. Should it gain this book and its ink, the world he shall rend asunder."

The witan advisors to Æthelred have tasked you with a secret mission to research whether the Book is true. Build an unlikely party of adventurers: a nun, a holy warrior, a bard, a beekeeper, and his bee, each with a mysterious past. Judge a witch trial, infiltrate the magical land of the elves, and even travel through time on your quest to extract fact from fiction.

Lovers of England's mythic history will delight as you meet Excalibur, the Green Children of Woolpit, and the Tremulous Hand, a creepy disembodied hand with a predilection for parchment. Put your analytical, investigative, and storytelling skills to the test as you decide where your loyalties lie: to the church, the crown, or the people of England.

Will you uncover the secret at the heart of English history, or succumb to the evil of the most deadly book ever created?

If you're tired of cyoas where you can reliably sort the choices into STR, DEX, INT, CHA categories, picking this one up will offer a refreshing change of pace. With a wide range of scholastic skills and personality temperaments to foster in your character, there's no one-size-fits-all INT option. You'll definitely want to play it more than once - the author gives you tons of choice without presenting any one option as good or evil. Minor spoiler - yes, the bee does have a mysterious past.

What an absolute pleasure! I managed to catch this on sale but I would have no issue paying full price. The writing quality is a little more advanced than many similar titles & reinforces the setting/time period. I will say that some of the choices are a little deceptive/or it's not entirely clear to which stats they relate. If you're a fan of shows such as the Last Kingdom, Merlin, Vikings or of medieval folklore, you can't go wrong with this. I found it exceptionally well-researched.

I actually purchased this book. Excellent storytelling and worldbuilding. All the characters in game were unique. The supernatural aspects of the book were very interesting along with the plot that was exceptionally well written. Also the stats worked perfectly and it was easy to choose the right choice. This was a fun story with great replayability. One of my favorite choice of game books ever. Highly recommend.
